For the first time, “Spider-Man” has knocked “Wicked” from its usual perch as the highest-grossing show on Broadway, claiming the top spot for itself last week. “Spider-Man” beat “Wicked” by just $58, with the teen-superhero musical grossing $1,588,514 while the revisionist Oz musical grossed $1,588,456. “Wicked,” though, had 100 percent of its audience paying for tickets (with an average paid admission of $109.76) while “Spider-Man” was offering some discount and complimentary tickets during its preview period; the average paid admission to the show was $102.86. That said, premium Spidey tickets top out at over $300.
